Adrianne Palicki, the Friday Night Lights hottie who play the role of the small town temptress Tyra Collette, will play the iconic comic book character Woman Wonder in the new NBC version of the show.

2011′s Wonder Woman is being remade by David E. Kelley, who promises a serious, non-campy take on the DC Comics great. The series pilot is a reinvention of the iconic DC Comics title in which Wonder Woman a.k.a. Diana Prince is a vigilante crime fighter in Los Angeles but also a successful corporate executive, crimefighter and a modern woman trying to balance all of the elements of her extraordinary life.

Wonder Woman is a DC Comics superheroine created by William Moulton Marston. She first appeared in All Star Comics #8 (December 1941). The Wonder Woman title has been published by DC Comics almost continuously except for a brief hiatus in 1986.

DC comic original Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman is an Amazon (based on the Amazons of Greek mythology) and was created by Marston, an American, as a “distinctly feminist role model whose mission was to bring the Amazon ideals of love, peace, and sexual equality to a world torn by the hatred of men.”

Wonder Womans powers include superhuman strength, flight, super-speed, super-stamina, and super-agility. She is highly proficient in hand-to-hand combat and in the art of tactical warfare. She also possesses an animal-like cunning and a natural rapport with animals, which has in the past been presented as an actual ability to communicate with the animal kingdom. She uses her Lasso of Truth, which forces those bound by it to tell the truth, a pair of indestructible bracelets, a tiara which serves as a projectile, and an invisible airplane.

Arguably the most popular and iconic female superhero in comics, Wonder Woman is also considered a feminist icon, and she is regarded as extremely physically attractive even by the standards of the superheroine. She was named the twentieth greatest comic book character by Empire magazine.

In addition to the comics, the character has appeared in other media; most notably, the 19751979 Wonder Woman TV series starring Lynda Carter.

Original Wonder Woman Lynda Carter

Lynda Carter, the original Wonder Woman, knows what a hard time any actress will have trying to step into that characters boots and Carter gives her seal of approval to Adrianne Palicki and the new costuming. I think she looks fabulous, said Carter. Its a new look and, jeez, her body looks fantastic.

Carter could say things like she can never fill those shoes, or the costume is wrong a ton of non-supportive things to sink Palicki right out of the gate but instead she wants people to give her the opportunity to shine.

You know, Im very sensitive to the fact that she will be compared, Carter said. Theres no getting around it. It is what it is. I would hope that people would cut her some slack.

She goes on to say she is really looking forward to seeing it herself and thinks its such a good story, its time has come and it should be out there again for a new generation.

What an adorable and unselfish Carter!
